Route A465 Pays des Galles

Le dernier tronçon de la route A465 dans le sud-est du Pays de Galles. Le projet vise à améliorer à deux voies dans chaque direction, la dernière section de 18 km de la route A465 qui traverse la bordure nord du sud industriel du Pays de Galles.



The A465 runs across the northern edge of industrial South Wales, providing a fast east-west connection between Swansea, Merthyr Tydfil and connections to the Midlands.

The Project will complete the last link of 17.7 km between Abergavenny and Hirwaun. It will facilitate economic regeneration of the Heads of the Valleys area by improving accessibility, and journey time reliability. It will overall strengthen resilience on the A465 by improving standards and enhancing road safety.

The Project is a 35-year contract to design, build, finance, operate and maintain this last 18km link of the A465. It includes 5.5 years of construction.

This project is procured by Welsh Government under the Mutual Investment Model (MIM) framework (largely based on Scottish NPD and UK NHS provisions, both familiar to Meridiam). The MIM framework is tailored to meet the specific needs of the Welsh Government’s infrastructure program and of the Welsh Government policy (including a very strong focus on the projects to delivering community benefits). It allows
for Welsh Government equity participation (in this case 15%).
